    Well this morning I had to look through some binoculars while trying to throw a beanbag into a box. And then I made chicks out of playdoh. Then there was lunch followed by chocklit brownies. Then they took my playdoh away and made me play reading games. Then there was staffroom gossip and cake.

    When's the next inset day?

    Me either!

    Though Alysia's school decided that the kids no longer get Monday off (President's Day). AllI know is I planned this trip WAY before they decided to change their calendar and they'd better not count her absent

    There was a point to it though. It was training to help early learners develop their gross and fine motor skills. And then reading exercises for children with special needs - which was really useful to me having 7 dyslexic children to work with.

    Cake was just an added bonus. :D
